Saturday Photo Hunters Theme: WILD

WILD CROWD

Wild crowd trying to get into/get out of the train at Kurla station.


The commuters pounce into the train even before it has halted, with little thought for others around them. There is a mad rush to get in, even if it means shoving the fellow commuter out of the  train.

If you are at the station for the first time, make sure you avoid peak hours. People hanging  out of the train at the door is a common sight even during non-peak hours. If you manage to set your feet on the train, it is important to squeeze yourself inside enough to be safe.

  11. The solution :
    More tracks.
    Or,
    We have to make floor system like our buildings.
    Ground floor - Short distance train
    1st floor - medium distance train
    2nd floor - Longest distance/Fast train

  15. Wow! Look at all those people. I really hate crowds -- I'm one of those who avoids shopping between halloween and Christmas! :) Do they even all make it on?

  17. Train crowds at peak hour are more than quite scary. Everyone just wants to get on the train and they don't care how! Great for the wild theme!
